  • None of the above.    

    Video conferencing is no longer a separate stand alone vendor.   Nor is it something we use day-to-day.   At least not the kind you would use to do a webinar or gather a group of people around a conference table for a meeting.    As individuals, we handle support case or do production work much more often from our desktops.   So if a particular client needs us and we're working an issue with their servers on-premise what we get from Ring Central is adequate and  works well enough.   Ring Central is our phone services vendor already and what we're using comes along with what we're already paying for.    I would surmise then the cost to us for WebEx was too much.

  • Like Jim Peters we do not gather a group of people around a conference table for a meeting or use video conferencing daily. While our phone provider includes video meeting/conferencing the owner didn't even consider it or request IT look into it or another provider, just picked one and that's what we use.

  • Skype/Teams because it's bundled with Office365. We did have Zoom for a bit but we realized we didn't need it so we didn't continue the licenses.

  • What dimforest said - at job.ngo we had the full O365 experience, such as it was, and it worked.

  • We have a lot of video calls with our sister companies in Europe.  Life Size has been rock solid for us and a pleasure to work with.  We use Skype for Business for a lot of our internal video calls, but Life Size for the important ones.

  • We have a seat of GoToMeeting for the rare occasions it comes up, mostly we connect with whatever platform the people doing the pitch use. STILL HATE WEBEX!!!!

  • Am I missing something?  The poll asks why, the options show "who".

  • Hi jcLambert, good point. We're trying to learn which vendor SpiceHeads chose and why, whilst also seeing which one is most used in our community (hence the poll).

    RingCentral uses Zoom, just rebranded.  We have this as part of our RingCentral platform as well.  However, we have been on gSuite for several years and therefore use Hangouts Meet.  It's been solid overall, and the hardware is inexpensive (and quite reliable).

  • I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me....

    Oh wait, we are talking about something else? SfB simply because it comes bundled with our Microsoft and Office site license. However, we still use other applications such as Zoom and Webex for communicating with others outside our organization.

  • Zoiper 5 Pro. We don’t use video on its own and wasn’t a priority so wasn’t part of our consideration in the purchase but came along with the solution. At the time of purchase, we were looking to upgrade our telephony system from POTS to SIP and want to use softphones as part of our day-to-day calls. It’s a one-time cost for a perpetual period until you want to upgrade to a new version and costs about the same or even less than a decent hardphone. The video on Zoiper 5 is just an add-on that already came with the product.
